Green School Spotlight: Sunstone Montessori

Sunstone Montessori School in Portland has recently certified as a Premier Level Oregon Green School.

At Sunstone, their work goes way above and beyond when it comes to implementing green practices and working with the community, including:

  • Working with Willamette Riverkeeper and Portland Parks to maintain their neighborhood park
  • Creating and are maintaining several gardens for student and community learning
  • Hosting community electronics recycling drives
  • Reducing water use 70% by installing low flow toilets
  • Asking families to bring their own reusable dishes to school events
  • Recycling everything that currently has a market
  • Not using new paper in the elementary school on Fridays. All paper that is used in class that day is re-used.

We applaud Sunstone Montessori for their work in building a sustainable community!Sunstone_Mont
